What to Expect

A day at our camp is a day outside on a working farm, under the cover of a pergola, with access to a play structure and outdoor games, and lots of open space for running and playing. We are located in Sechelt, within easy walking distance of the Kinnikinnick forest trails, and beach access points to the Sechelt Inlet.

 

Each session will be led by Michy Stevens, a lovely and creative human being who also teaches elementary school on the Sunshine Coast. Your kids will have the opportunity to do daily farm chores with Farmers Julie & Socrates, and each week we'll focus on different activities related to farming and foraging, with 2 special workshops hosted by our Friends of the Farm.
